Maduro: Spain Celebrates the Holocaust of Our Ancestors For those unaware, October 12 is a national holiday in Spain. Once called “Día de la Hispanidad,” it’s that country’s national day and also its Day of the Armed Forces. They now call it “Fiesta Nacional,” or “National Festival.” For us and many others, the fact that Spain has chosen this day to celebrate its nationhood is extremely offensive and illustrates how the racism of colonialism is still deeply a part of this country’s identity. Venezuela President Nicolás Maduró agrees. On Saturday, Maduro told an assembly of military personnel how he felt about Spain’s Fiesta. “In Spain, [they celebrate October 12] as their national day…I felt outraged and offended that elsewhere they celebrate the day that began the American Indian Holocaust,” Maduro said. “Spain should reconsider this, as should the rest of Europe, because they cannot be celebrating the day that began the massacre, or the holocaust, of 100 million men and women who were our grandfathers and our grandmothers,” he said. “That’s why today is neither Día de la Hispanidad, nor is it Día de la Raza, it is a day of resistance for our Aboriginal Peoples. Resistance to conquest, resistance to colonialism, resistance to the Holocaust,” Maduro added. Although many of his statements have at times provided easy fodder for critics, Maduro’s words are poignant and exactly what needed to be said to Spain that day. A salute to Nicolás Maduro, and to his predecessor, Hugo Chávez, for officially making October 12 Day of Indigenous Resistance in Venezuela!
What happened to Deep Cuts on Complex? Only good thing on their site for a good minute. They hatin' on the kidd? What's really hood?
They wanted to get away from daily posts to monthly shit then some changes started going down. I don’t really know what’s going on over there. I’m not actively chasing writing gigs so I’m not tripping over it as writing about rap isn’t my career, I just like doing it.
I’m not feeling this beat at all, it’s too lightweight dubstep with twinkles of house. And while I’m all for dude fucking with his style and voice the singing parts just sound like he’s doing Prince karaoke. I’m not trying to dip my toes in that soulfoul house pool. Not every idea is a good one.
I have been collecting local Bay Area records for a long time now and this is the first Soul mix i’ve made. I’ve also helped to put out two Bay Area Funk compilations on Ubiquity records as well. Figured I share some of my Soul with the Funk i’ve already given you. These bands hail from SF, Oakland, Stockton, Richmond, Vallejo, Monterey, Fresno, and East Palo Alto. Enjoy a taste of the Bay Area Soul music scene. Enjoy!

I didn’t realize this was on soundcloud but yeah you should listen, Justin is an alright human.
This makes me sick… Last night the homie Ghost8800 was killed… No details yet, but whatever happened, it’s wack. There’s nothing sadder than wasted talent… The other day Ghost sent me a bunch of new music, and here’s my favorite from the ZIP file he sent over, featuring Gasss. Ghost8800 was a talented rapper & producer, and more than that, he was a good dude. He’ll definitely be missed. RIP homie.

You ever hear of Burzum? Is that shit nice to your ears or fuck no?
It’s been a minute since I bothered to listened to any. Yes, I listen to some questionable shit but I can’t get down with Vikernes. Yeah whatever motherfuckers can tell me Burzum is separate from his political views but I’m not with it. It bothers me to the point that I can’t really pay attention to the music he makes. Eugenics and an aversion to “race mixing” is some fucking lunacy from a dude trying to put a spell on you so you can get in touch with magic? I’m good with that nerd shit, leave that shit for metal hobbits who think immigrants are why they can’t get laid.
